simplistic and i have been accused of speaking too much education ease and implement the roar curriculum and implement it in every school. we're going to support every teacher and administrator in understanding what it is and ensuring there is rigor. in other words, that students are held to the same expectations whether they're in the east side school, west side, north or south side school. we want to make sure students are challenged and accelerated at every point. we adopted a new english language arts k instructional suite. we are confident it will give the teachers more resources to teach students at a rigorous level but it doesn't replace the core curriculum that i spoke of. we're going to continue and enhance the assessments to inform instruction. we don't want to conduct autopsies and look at we should have, we could have, why didn't we? we want to look at various points in the year how are the students doing right now? and what can we adjust in terms of the instruction right now to ensure that our students are learning at their maximum potential. if you look at school

education and training programs. that's all well and good, brenda and we know that's going to cost millions and millions of dollars, but that's not how the economy works. >> gary b, it's spending more, what does that do to the debt? >> well, brenda, he tries to get up, up, up. when i went to work for ibm 30-odd years ago, the government didn't teach me how computers work. bem caught me. rockefeller's oil company taught people how to drill for oil and gas and the third thing that strikes me that's not going to work. he wants to double manufacturing jobs, increase manufacturing jobs, that's fine, but why does the manufacturing get the benefit of government largest, why not the financial sector, oil and gas, all of this stuff drives the debt sky high and we know that the government can't spend money efficiently, it's just wrong. >> and jonas, there are also some tax hikes here, and wouldn't that do something to decrease the deficit? >> yes, it's the only specific tax increase that-- of both candidates and if you would close the deficit and turn some of the tacks to the higher levels,

, everybody thought the solution was a higher degree of education and went from high school to diploma and college degree and eventually graduate degree. that doesn't work anymore because the nature of work is changing. the way we fix it is to understand we have to not only invent things in the united states, we have to figure out how to make them in the united states. >> we're not really doing that. author of "death by china," peter, you call this a triple zero economy. the past ten years, zero jobs growth, zero wage growth, zero stock returns. which part of that equation is the most crippling? >> i think all of them. if you think about the middle class, where they need jobs, they need wage growth. we've seen average meaning household income actually go nowhere and importantly in their 401(k)s have become 201 ks, they need robust stock returns. if we're going to get wage growth and jobs growth clearly we have to do, as the guest said, we have to restore the manufacturing base. one good news i have in this triple zero economy, i think going forward the next decade for stock returns will be

advance women and women making advancements in college education, in even doctors biology, chemistry, education. you're still seeing this bias in the sciences. are we ever going to overcome it? >> interestingly enough it turns out at yale, they have some of the higher numbers for women in the stem program. 39-46% of their women or of their students in that program are female and i think last year they had around 40 something percent graduation rate where the national average is 38%. what bothers or concerns me with this is some of this is still unfortunately, biased and prejudices. both from men and women. and that's really human nature and how do we get beyond that? because i think part of it, you see with the study that some women graded men higher and that's because they thought the guy was really more qualified or are you afraid you might lose your position? on the other side of that coin is where men, the bias is that do you want to keep an old boy's network or open up for women? so the other thing that i think we are working on but need to work hard ser to encourage our young w

with more, consumer education director for credit dot com. thank you for joining us. how widespread is it? how often does it happen that your credit score as the consumer is different than a score your lender is looking at? >> well, almost 100 percent of the time because typically consumers do not get this course that lenders are using, unless they have already applied for credit and been turned down or charge more for credit, then a disclosure is required, but what most of us are doing is going online, getting an education credit score which can be helpful but is not necessarily the same score the lender is using. lori: so why should i spend a right to purchase by credit score if it is now with the lenders getting anywhere? >> it's a great question. of course we give a free credit score. we know what you spend that money. i think what consumers need to look at is, what is the information telling me about my credit worthiness. what can i improve and what can to improve? you can avenges court. lori: and as to what your saying, but i just want to give money. i want to borrow money. a fir
